The Black Lobster, also known as A Day in the Life of Halron Allierté, was a fan written Fighting Fantasy adventure by Andrew Wright. It was published online in 2005 at Fighting fantasy gamebooks.[1]


YOU are Halron Allierté, nephew of 'Laughing' Guidon Allierté, and overseer of The Black Lobster. The perks of the job are not too bad, and as long as you are not too greedy or noticeable in skimming the profits to fund your continual drunkenness, then you are also safe from the legendary ire of your uncle Guidon.[2]


The adventure in general follows the original rules set down in The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (see Game System).

Unique RulesEdit

  • There are different rolls for the first two stats. With skill, a roll of 1 of 2 on a 1d6 means a starting skill of 7, a roll of 3 or 4 a stat of 8, and a roll of 5 or 6 a starting score of 9. For stamina this is a 1d6 roll with 6 added. luck remains the same.
  • The adventure is divided into five sections, each one representing a different time of the day on a typical day at The Black Lobster. At the start of each section, except for the first, the player must roll an indicated number of dice and add the total as Gold Pieces to their Strongbox. This represents the takings made at the tavern.
